Accessories for Bride on Wedding Day | Diamond Bridal Gallery

While many brides have Pinterest Boards filled inspiration for everything from ethereal boho A-lines to Cinderella worthy ballgowns. But accessories for the bride on her wedding day can be trickier. Here’s our quick guide:

  1. Necklaces: Necklaces are especially important for relatively plain necklines and draw the attention upwards. Silver, gold, and rose gold all work when paired with other accessories, while pearls can be traditional or even vintage. For added elegance, some brides opt for a diamond or gem necklace, while a crystal or even stacked necklace with pops of color works for a more modern look.
    1. As a general rule, go for more minimalist necklaces with a heavily embroidered neckline.
  2. Bracelets: Bracelets should not take away from the overall look, but work as great accessories for the bride on her wedding day either to complement necklaces or the neckline. Keep it simple and one might even throw their something blue by opting for a colored bracelet.
  3. Earrings: Earrings can range from bold to delicate. Drop earrings are especially popular, but studs are beautiful for a more subdued look. Favorites include pearls, diamonds, sterling silver, rose or yellow gold, and even small hoops for a more modern look. For the boho bride, something natured inspired works well for earrings.
  4. Veils: A veil can complete a wedding look in a classic and beautiful way.
    1. Birdcage veils are the perfect vintage look and just frame part of the eyes. They are often paired with tea length dresses.
    2. Elbow length veils give off a 60’s and 70’s vibe and also work for hot weather weddings.
    3. Chapel and Cathedral veils are perfect for more traditional and religious ceremonies and create a more opulent entrance.
    4. Finger Tip Veils are an especially popular option as they work for weddings of all styles and are elegant but practical.
  5. Headpieces: For brides who aren’t interested in wearing a veil, a headpiece may just be the perfect accessory for the wedding day. Beaded, pearls, crystals, floral details, satin, and even a simple bow or a pop of color are all great options. Boho options include feathered headpieces. Hair combs are also a great vintage or even modern look.
  6. Shoes: Shoes complete the look, and while they may not be the most obvious accessory, brides should consider what suits them best. Everything goes, from satin ballet flats to classic ivory pumps. If you have a tea length dress or jumpsuit, keep in mind the shoes may grab more attention.
